Deploy this package containing nearly all known codecs that are specially optimized for Windows 7 and 8 in order to fully enjoy your favorite movies and music

For instance, users can rely on Advanced Codecs for Windows 7 and 8 to make sure they can play a wide range of multimedia files without needing any additional apps.

Select elements you want installed on your system

If users are familiar with codecs and they are confident they can identify the ones they require, they can choose the Custom installation mode. On the other hand, beginners are strongly advised to go with the Complete mode and install all the available codecs otherwise they might overlook important ones.

After installing Advanced Codecs for Windows 7 and 8, users who prefer MKV over other formats are able to get a glimpse of the contents of their files due to the displayed thumbnails – they are also created for other non-native formats, such as FLV.

Configure codecs for an enhanced multimedia experience

Those who like to have complete control over the applications installed on their computer can disable various codecs and enable them at a later time via an intuitive tabbed interface.

It needs to be mentioned that Advanced Codecs for Windows 7 and 8 can be installed on all editions of Windows 7 and 8, be they x86 or x64 systems, but for the latter type x64 Components Addon is required to make sure all codecs run smoothly.
